About Rates - ACC Membership and Hut Bookings

ACC Membership is not required for booking ACC huts

Rates:
Booking BC Parks huts:

The ACC operates 5 huts in the BC Parks jurisdiction: Elk Lakes Cabin, Woodbury Cabin, Silver Spray Cabin, Kokanee Glacier Cabin and the Conrad Kain Hut. We offer member and non-member rates at these huts. 

Booking ACC Section Huts:

The ACC hut network includes huts which are operated by local sections: Jim Haberl Hut, Tantalus Hut, Wendy Thompson Hut, Bon Echo Hut, Keene Farm and Montagne d’Argent Hut.

Bookings for these section huts are made directly with the section. Rates and booking policies are set by the section and discounted rates are often available for members of that section.

Hut Fees and the Environment

The ACC operates the largest network of backcountry huts in North America. The costs involved in servicing, maintaining and upgrading the hut system are substantial. Here’s a little bit about our fees:

  • The hut fees that we collect pay for the operation and long-term viability of the hut system.
  • A portion of all hut fees goes to our Energy, Water and Waste Management Fund which is used to minimize our huts’ impact on the environment.
  • Our goal is to come as close as possible to zero impact on the areas in which we operate facilities. We can only do this with the help of informed and conscientious hut users.
  • Please be responsible about paying your hut fees.

Parks Canada Backcountry Camping Permits

Parks Canada requires all overnight backcountry users (including users of ACC huts in the National Parks) to purchase a backcountry camping permit.

  • These passes will be added at the time of hut booking.
  • A portion of the fee from the backcountry camping permit collected by the ACC goes toward conservation and environmental work at the Club’s huts located within National Parks.
  • Backcountry camping permit pricing:
    • Overnight backcountry camping fee: $10.02 per person, per night.
  • Overnight backcountry camping permits may only be purchased with a hut booking.
